What a garbage game

There forwards owned ours

Our halves Sucked

And our backs were out classed

Until Brooks gets a decent partner in the halves we will continue to struggle

Great to catch up witn Geo and have a few cordials !
We need mongrel ..
No more plodders !

We would have got pumped even with Fonua. Ill discipline and execution cost us tonight.
We seem to be ill disciplined every week! The supposed culture change is doing nothing to change that.
Can't say I agree with that. You honestly don't think we're a different team under Cleary?
We are different under Cleary, no doubt. We have spirit but lack class players. If we finish in top 10 it will have been a great achievement when you think Reynolds is our Marquee player.

I see that game as a huge positive.

We were out muscled and outclassed and defended like animals.

Off my eye that looked like a flogging, to keep them tryless in the 2nd half was just outstanding.

We will take a lot out of that game.

Oh no we're a different team alright, but it seems every week we are caned by the refs for ill discipline - you said it yourself. Needs to change, but it's not. We can blame the refs for bias or whatever once in a while, but when it's happening every week, we need to look at what we're doing wrong and damn well fix it.

Hung with them only because they bombed 3 or 4 tries . We didnt look like scoring all night. This is our biggest problem this year. Can compete in an arm wrestle, but not if we fall more than 6 points behind.

That is a massive concern

Teams rarely win the following week after making more than 400 tackles the previous week

We have a 10 day turnaround which will really help, the players would be buggered right now

Liddle and Marshall are 2 of the worst and most selfish players in the comp
What has liddle done?

Every week he kills our attack with the old Robbie style runs. Only done it once tonight but it was a crucial one. He has been horrendous the past month. Needs the year in ISP. He has been rushed into first grade, its not fair on him physically IMO. The big boys destroy him.
I have suspected this for awhile - now you have proven it - You have no idea.

I think we all learnt that MCK isn't a centre.
Didn't go too bad but just isn't what we need out there.
Thought McQueen went ok at first glance.

We just looked like we did everything slower than they did.

Their line speed and PTB was faster than ours all night.

Stats show we completed at 77% (30/39) vs 81% (34/42) and 44% possession.

It felt like it was, penalty, penalty, our ball, our error - their ball, penalty, penalty all second half.

I guess you can't make mistakes if you don't have the ball...

Does anyone know our completion rate and total sets we have in the 2nd half?

Well WT it was 18/21 at HT so 12/18 second half , I thought we may have completed 8 or 9 sets at most , but stats are stats
